History favours Man City as title race goes to wire

History favours Man City as title race goes to wire

ARSENAL have at least taken the Premier League title race to the final day of the season but the omens are not good for Mikel Arteta's team if they are to stop Manchester City from making history. City's nervy 2-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, their eighth league victory in a row, means they arrive at the final day of the campaign with a two-point lead over Arsenal. Victory over West Ham United would seal a fourth successive title for Pep Guardiola's side -- an unprecedented feat in English football. Arsenal, who have barely put a foot wrong since…

Arsenal right where they want to be with one game left says Arteta

ARSENAL are exactly where they want to be with one game remaining in front of their fans at the Emirates Stadium and the possibility of claiming a first Premier League trophy in 20 years, manager Mikel Arteta said. Leandro Trossard scored in the 20th minute to secure a 1-0 victory at Manchester United on Sunday that saw Arteta's side provisionally overtake Manchester City atop the Premier League, ensuring the title race will be decided on the final day. Arsenal have 86 points with one game left of the tightest title race in years. While City remain in the driving seat with 85…

TALKING points from the weekend in the Premier League: LIVELY LIVERPOOL SET UP FOR KLOPP SEND-OFF Liverpool's players showed against Brighton & Hove Albion they are ready and willing to do everything in their power to give coach Juergen Klopp a successful send-off as he enters his final months as manager. Sunday's comeback win featured everything that Klopp holds dear -- suffocating pressure high up the field, quick decisions and little skill from his attacking players turning a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 win for the home side. The win put Liverpool back on top of the table and the…

Arsenal’s Partey back for Sheffield United visit, Arteta says

THOMAS Partey is set to return to the Arsenal squad after a four-month absence when they visit bottom side Sheffield United, manager Mikel Arteta said. The Ghana international has had multiple injury problems this season and hasn't played since October, with just four Premier League appearances this campaign. "Thomas had a session before the last game and now he's done two consecutive sessions and he should be part of the squad," Arteta told reporters on Thursday. Oleksandr Zinchenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu, both out with calf issues, are close to recovery but not certain for Monday, Arteta said. "It's possible but…

Arsenal smash six past woeful West Ham to send title message

ARSENAL exacted sweet revenge on West Ham United with a 6-0 away thrashing to stay right in the thick of the Premier League title race, obliterating their hosts before halftime. Mikel Arteta's side had lost twice against their London rivals this season but were 4-0 ahead by halftime with goals by William Saliba, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel and Leandro Trossard. The punishment continued in the second half with Saka making it 5-0 before former West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who assisted two goals in the opening period, thumped his team's sixth on a day of abject humiliation for the hosts. It…

RAMSDALE FAILS TO ANSWER ARTETA DOUBTS ARSENAL manager Mikel Arteta refused to get drawn too deeply into Aaron Ramsdale's performance at Brentford on Saturday but the England goalkeeper can hardly be expected to keep David Raya out of the starting lineup after a nervy display. Raya could not play for Brentford, the club from whom the Spaniard is on loan, giving Ramsdale his first start in the Premier League since September but he failed to impress. He got away with two mad moments in the first half and, despite Arteta praising his courage, Raya is likely to be back between…
